countries, you can't take care of people here now. >> reporter: adjustments on airbnb will be considered during this 90-day moratorium. some believe the current regulations are restricting the current housing supply. that's one of many issues in the city according to some renters. programs haven't been put in place. but according to a landlord, he says that this will hurt him and that he is calling it political showmanship. he never evicted anyone in 17 years as a property owner. jackie ward, kpix 5. a superior court judge has rejected a legal attempt to prevent san jose from repealing a plan to reform city workers' pensions. it was in 2012 city voters approved measure b touted by then the mayor chuck reed as a way to cut costs. the reduced pension contributions to a mass exodus to the police department [ sic ]. under the current mayor they

the nation. the mayor says he will sign it. the state already pays 55% of parents' salaries for those six weeks. now companies that have more than 20 employees will be required to make up the other 45%. >> we need to stop forcing parents to make the terrible decision about whether to bond with a child or whether to put food on the table. >> while this may be good news for the workers, small business owners tell us they are concerned the new policy could hurt their bottom line. bay area travelers will soon have a new way to fly to southern california. starting april 19, buchanan field airport in concord will have three daily flights to burbank. later in the month there will also be flights to las vegas on weekends. jetsuite a private operator will offer the flights. the aircraft will be 30-seat jets but the prices should be the same as better known airlines. >> at this point, they are looking at $109 each way and

victory a path toward the white house. >> as for our state's primary, kpix 5's political analyst predicts the closer the race gets the more our votes will count. >> two things became likely. number one it will be an open convention and number 2 the last bulwark to prevent an open convention is going to be california. so either way, for californians, very good news. >> after this saturday's democratic caucuses in wyoming, the next big contest are the democratic and republican primaries in new york april 19. as the candidates try to win new york, president obama is flying to the bay area to support his party. the white house says heading to a few democratic fundraisers on friday an plans to stay the night in san francisco -- and plans to stay the night in san francisco. he will go back to washington on saturday. his last bay area fundraising trip was in february. time now is 6:08. comedian amy schumer is in a
